Welcome to ENGLOBE

A Training Programme for Doctoral Students

With the newly emerging supra-disciplinary field of Global History and the conceptual tools of the Enlightenment, ENGLOBE provides a research platform that critically assesses Europe’s role in the process of globalization. We focus our critical research on four key concepts: Knowledge, Perception, Values, and Evolution.  By challenging eurocentric conceptualizations of world history and following the assumption that Europe will no longer dominate the globalization process in the future, ENGLOBE encourages critical thought that can be applied to global conflicts through reflected intercultural communication.

The ENGLOBE training program is built upon existing doctoral programmes and provides its researcher fellows with thorough academic training in the new field of Global History, enhances academic qualifications and complementary skills, and establishes training structures for thematically specialized international doctoral training.  We also assist our researchers in the development of e-learning and new forms of communication methods, conference organization, publication, project funding and management.

With the cooperation of several partner universities and cultural institutes, participation in international conferences, providing e-lectures and web-based communication platforms, our doctoral researchers are an integral part of a global network, rich in academic resources and diverse perspectives.
